Propliner Magazine

Propliner magazine was founded by Stephen Piercey (R.I.P.) and first published in Januray 1979; he felt that vintage transports, affectionately known as Propliners, deserved a magazine dedicated to them. He was right, as it is still around 20+ years later and widely respected by fans of the "big, round engines".
The contents is dedicated to mostly civilian, propellor-driven transports still earning their keep or preserved in some way or another, but also looks back upon events and profiles airline companies when the aviation industry largely consisted of these prop-driven airliners or freighters.
Tony Merton Jones joined Propliner from the start and continues as the driving force behind this excellent magazine.
Propliner magazine is published four times each year and largely survives by the dedication of a small team and propliner fans from around the globe, providing articles, news and photographs.
As I found no "presence" of Propliner on the internet, I sought to remedy that with this page on my internetsite, being a fan of aviation history, propellor transports in particular and Propliner magazine covers all this expertedly.

Propliners magazine bound to a very nice series
By jan.2014 had this project almost done: my Propliner Magazine, complete from edition no.1 (1979), bound in a nice series.
Two last editions will be done when 2013 is complete.
Finding a good book binder is a quest these days, the old trade is hard to find.
Loogman's Boekbinderij in Amsterdam did a wonderful job. Aviation magazines apparently did them a good trade (Vliegende Hollander, World Airline Fleets, etc).
